Japan’s favourite dark beer. Brewed in Osaka, Asahi Black is made from three different roasted malts. This gives it a rich, nutty flavour and makes it incredibly smooth-drinking. Unlike other, more bitter dark beers and stouts, it’s brewed in a process called bottom fermentation, which gives it a subtle, sweet edge and smooth 5% abv.

GT2 (7870) - Carlsbad, California, USA - SEP 1, 2013
11.3oz bottle. Pours clear cola. Soda tan, fizzing out foam. Sweet apple nose. Mild soy, Taste is quite sweet with red apple, quite a decent amount of sugar. Dark cherry cola comes to mind. No flaws. Drinkable, but no roast character. More sweet roll and cherry.

Beergeek23322 (2024) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aromas of sweet roasted malt, caramel and coffee. Flavors add a bit of bitterness, but this is a very smooth beer and easy to drink.

richc (239) - Bolton, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2013
Slight roasty nose with a touch of caramel, pleasant if not amazing. Flavour follows aroma with a fair bit of sweetness and a touch of balancing bitterness. A pleasant, but not a great beer

KansaiBeerLvrs (1326) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 27, 2013
It was a thank you gift, it poured a dark reddish brown with a light tan head. The aroma is sweet syrupy chocolate. The taste matches, sweet syrupy light chocolate, highly carbonated & a dry finish with nuttiness in the aftertaste. It kind of reminds me of Kyoto Machiya’s dark beer. It is kind of meh, too sweet & cloying in the aftertaste I think. It is pretty sweet. Kind of cool it is brewed in Osaka, my can said it was "Munich type" not sure what they meant...
